Strawberry Balsamic Salad with Basil and Feta

Jump to Recipe

We don’t have a huge garden, but we did plant a lot of basil this year. Basil is my favorite herb, I love it on anything and everything. Our plants are finally taking off and I have been enjoying fresh basil wherever I can. I recently made this strawberry balsamic salad with fresh basil and feta cheese. I wasn’t sure if these flavors would work together at first, but after one bite, I was hooked.

I love adding fruit to my green salads. My strawberry spinach salad is one of my favorites. I decided to omit the greens and stick to the strawberries for this salad. I added a splash of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, and feta cheese. The combination was delightful. The flavors are simple, but intense at the same time. If you are tired of the traditional green salads, give this strawberry balsamic salad a try. You will be eating gourmet style in a manner of minutes.

  1. Feta compliments sweet fruit so well! YUM! I bet it’d be fun to do a blueberry strawberry blend too. Hope you have a nice Thursday

  2. My whole life I have been the pickiest salad eater in the world. Iceberg lettuce, croutons, black olives, italian dressing. That’s it – I wouldn’t touch anything else! But after reading all your recipes about salads, I’ve finally started to open my mind 🙂 In fact, I ate my very first strawberry/spinach salad a few weeks ago! And you know what?? YUM!!! I’m already looking forward to making this one!! 🙂

  4. Ooh that looks crazy good! I love that you skipped the greens on this one. I bet the strawberries and feta are fantastic together. Thanks for such a great idea!

  5. Had I not read this delicious-sounding recipe here, I never would have imagined using the combo of basil and strawberries. The picture makes it look incredible. I can’t wait to serve this at the end of a pasta meal, making the perfect light dessert!

    Thanks!

  7. Really lovely flavors in this, Maria. Balsamic and strawberries are a great combination, and the feta would add a great tang.

  8. Strawberries with balsamic was one of the first things I remember my boyfriend making for me. One night after we went to dinner we went back to his apartment and were hungry for dessert. He had strawberries so he fixed them w/balsamic vinegar in champagne flutes. I love little memories like that 🙂 I bet feta and basil would be great additions!

  9. Strawberries are hands-down my absolute favorite fruit. I would love to try this salad! It looks so fresh and tasty!
